5 best moments from the Pittsburgh Steelers week 2 win vs the Broncos
James Conner had a frustrating 2019 season, and it was a frustrating week 1 for him as well.
James Conner dealt with an ankle injury suffered in week 1. He ended up leaving the game early and Benny Snell took over. Conner opened up for the Steelers for their first two drives, none of the other running backs would get a chance until their final drive of the first quarter.
After the Steelers generated the fumble on Denver’s second possession they would drive down the field and this would happen.
James Conner would score his first touchdown of the new season. This was his 1st rushing touchdown since the Steelers beat Miami in week 8 of the 2019 season per ProFootballReference. It wasn’t a 99-yard touchdown, but it was nice to see James Conner reach the end zone in hopes of getting himself going not only for week 2 but for the remainder of the 2020 season.
All in all James Conner would have a pretty productive day. He’d tally a total of 121 yards from scrimmage and 1 touchdown. This was inflated a little bit by a 59-yard run to flip the field on the Steeler’s final drive. They would ride Conner the whole drive in order to chew the clock out and kneel for the final play.
